Our talent development process is outdated and needs an upgrade. Employers struggle to find the talent they need, students enter programs with little connectivity to the world of work, and job seekers are left trying to decipher an antiquated job description.
Jason Green is an experienced entrepreneur, lawyer, and strategist who has focused his career on empowering individuals and communities.
Green co-founded and serves as Senior Vice President and General Counsel for SkillSmart, a technology company that uses skills to connect employers, job seekers, and education providers to reform the talent development pipeline and improve employment outcomes.
Immediately prior to this endeavor, Green served as Special Assistant to the President and Associate Counsel to President Obama, where he advised on legal, economic and domestic policy matters. Prior to joining the White House Counsel’s Office, Green served as the National Voter Registration Director for the 2008 Obama for America general campaign, and held several leadership positions in battleground states during the 2008 primary campaign.
